Spring's Fast Track + Ohio adventures

Now that Mardi Gras and St Patty's is over, we have just a quick breather before the busy-ness of April and all the festing fun.  New Orleans really never stops the party, which is something to marvel at.  Between parade season, crawfish season, and festival season, we still manage to get some work done.  We are mindful and diligent folks though, and choose our moments to be super in (March) or super out (April). 
We have a lot of exciting shows and news coming through April and then at the end of May, Matt & I will be traveling duo style up to Ohio and back for a short tour/concert adventure to see one of our favorite bands play at their farm outside of Cincinnati.  They are called Over the Rhine.  Amazing songwriters and a lovely married couple too.  They inspire us. 

Here's a quick run-down for April, but check the calendar for more details and other upcoming events. 

Sunday, April 7th -  2:30 pm - 3:45 pm Hattiesburg Zoo Blues Fest at The Keg and Barrel, Hattiesburg, MS  We're delighted to be invited again this year for this festival!
Tuesdays, April 9th & 23rd - 7:00 pm Sweet Jones 'Lectric Duo Check Point Charlies, New Orleans - Matt & I will be working out some new material duo style
Saturday, April 13th - 7:00 pm Check Point Charlies - Full Band in the midst of French Quarter Fest
Sunday, April 28th - 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm Slidell Antique Street Fair, Slidell, LA - I know, it's Jazz Fest weekend, but Slidell's not far, you can take a breather and check out some really cool antiques and a variety of fabulous bands as well. 
Friday, May 3rd - 11:00 pm  Check Point Charlie, New Orleans - It's the 2nd weekend of Jazz Fest, so if you're in town and missed us like we miss you, come out after the fest and hang out!

Keep on the look out for El DeOrazio at the end of April as well - he'll be unleashing a short-run preview EP of their new record.  They've been hard at work in the studio and are about halfway through this album, but wanted to share at least part of it sooner than later. 

On our way to Ohio at the end of May, Matt & I will be passing through Clarksdale, MS; Nashville, TN; Cincinnati, OH; Knoxville, TN; Atlanta, GA, and maybe a little Florida beach town on the way back just because.  If you live in one of these towns or know someone who wants to host a house concert in one of these towns, please help us connect the dots.  Thank you so much, we are grateful for the support and encouragement!!
